SINGAPORE Nov 14 (Reuters) - Singapore Telecommunications Ltd reported a 1.6 percent fall in second-quarter net profit on Wednesday, partly dragged down by higher costs.

SingTel, Southeast Asia's largest telecommunications firm, had net profit of S$868 million ($709.9 million) for the three months ended in September, down from S$882 million a year earlier.

Underlying net profit was S$886 million. That was below the S$896 million average forecast based on a Reuters poll of six analysts.
